There are many things we can do to practice preventative health care with our dogs and cats. Some, such as using ThePetCheckup, are best to do once per month. Other things are as simple as keeping an observant eye over any changes in your animal’s behavior or appearance.
Dogs and cats like people can have an off day, but there are many conditions which left untreated can create serious illness quite quickly with no fanfare. The common urinary tract infection, for instance, if left untreated can develop into a kidney infection which has the potential to become quite serious. Blockages can form - either partial or complete – and lead to a rupture of the bladder.
Like we always say: It is always better to catch an illness at an early stage, than have to treat a more serious condition later on.
